There are a number of good choices as long as they meet your specs. Lot of good sales on right now too.

    Not sure if it's made anymore but Tasco made a model called the World Class Plus a few moons ago and it was about $150, 10-40 power non the less.. bought one and still in use today.. never had a problem with it and it's clear, bright and stays and adjusts without ever having any problem..

    Hey there my friend just had the same deal you do. He went from bsa6x24 to the Redfield revenge 6-18. Scope is fantastic for the price, fineplex retical really make long shots nice.

    Here's my son with the model I'm talking about, he won a lot of long range groundhog matches with his and that's adjusting 100-300-500 yards constantly...and this scope is still hanging in there.

    Frank / Laurels , those World Class Plus Tascos were made in Taiwan maybe 10 or 15 years ago and only for a short time . Optics were very good , but I never saw them for $150 ..... saw them at Pa. shows for around $225 to $250 . Had a friend who always laughed at Tascos until he tried one ....then put it on his Sako Varminter . These are nothing like todays Chinese Tascos . I still have one new in Box . The Nikon Buckmaster 6-18X available today has Optics way beyond its price point .
